Good evening,
I shot this Wedding in early July. The ceremony was at 1pm but, there was plenty of shade at the ceremony to keep that harsh sun out. I shot the whole wedding using only my 60D and the Tamron 60mm, f2 Macro and I was just wondering about anybody's thoughts on the editing in these and what you think overall. Thanks for any feedback!

I set a remote flash behind the cake and liked the effect.

These look like nice. The cake shot is good to but honestly setting up an OFC is not worth the effort .IMO :)

Thank you! I hear ya about the OCF. I almost didnt set it up but I wasn't feeling the shots when I was shooting it and thought what the hell. I put it away after that.

I like them but I don't really do weddings. Is that a tripod and movie camera behind the person officiating? Might be to remove it if it was me.

Good Job. Clone that tripod out. It really takes away from the images. :)

Second shot - step left to take the guy on the right out of the frame. Keep the posts equal between left and right frame.

Sometimes it's just the compression from posting on the web, but to me it looks like you went a little heavy on the clarity slider.

I love my ocf for receptions but yeah it is a pain sometimes. It's also a magnet for kids to mess with and break. I was actually shooting tonight and at cake cutting I had a nice kicker going and when the cake was over I looked at my last image and thought wheres the kick? I looked up and a kid had just swiveled the stand to point at the wall... wft

anyways I think your editing isn't bad but I would crop tighter in that 3rd one and get rid of the 1st Imo it was a fine experimental shot I get that you might have been going for but the wood just kinda looks crooked, old and oof. If I was going to get arty farty I might even say it makes you think maybe the wedding it rickety like the fence. I dunno haha

Love the barn door shot.

The kiss is pretty weak - zoom in, or get closer, or zoom out. My eye is confused. Either wider or tighter works, but you picked a medium length that feels a bit bland.

Nice job for your first time. I wouldn't do it for every single shot, but if they pic any images for prints or to go in an album I would edit out the tripod/videocam in those images. Wayyy to much time to do that on every single photo and I'm sure it bothers you more than it bothers them.

Looks good man. It is difficult to get great shots of the bride and groom during the ceremony without being too invasive to their space and without being distracting to the audience. The editing looks good... the only thing that seems a little noticeable to me is that the saturation is boosted, namely in the greens and reds, to compensate for the lack of camera and lens quality. I would love to see one day these shots done with a 70-200mm lens so that you have flexibility with zoom and some depth of field from the subjects and the background.
